are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the

there are disagreements. there ought to be disagreements there are huge disagreements. the president of the united states should not kowtow to the egyptian president about some movie. the problem the united states government has said by leading with this question of this film, which is sort of this bogus pretext. it may have been the instigator for the rally but the united states government should not be having a discussion with mohammed morsi, a 9/11 truther about some crazy film made by kooky director which has nothing to do what is actually going on at this point. we legitimize, i'm afraid, the notion that this film actually matters to the entire discussion when in fact the real problem is with the egyptian government. there are real questions why the security forces that have helped protect the u.s. embassy in cairo simply melted away in the face of the attacks. the participants, ayman al-zawahiri being one of the leaders in that protest. there are serious questions. i hope they're being resolved in private because they're not being discussed in public. bill: meantime you have a campaign that will pl
